Georgia Church Fire Called Arson

November 20, 2009

Georgia fire officials say a blaze that destroyed a Clayton County church was caused by arson, and a $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.

The Calvary Church in Morrow burned to the ground when it caught fire sometime before 4 a.m. Sunday.

Glenn Allen, spokesman for Georgia Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner John Oxendine, says investigators descovered traces of an accelerant that had been used to start the fire.

Oxendine’s arson investigators are coordinating the investigation, and Allen says the commissioner’s office is looking for the public’s help.

No one was hurt in the blaze that started in the rear of the wood-framed building.
